As much as I hated leaving Winnipeg after my brief visit, I was super excited to get back to Chicago with Xierra, to spend Spring Break with her. We only had a week, so we crammed as much 'awesomeness' into it as humanly possible. Here's a summary:
|Last time we flew together, just the two of us, was when she was 2.5 years old!|
One of Xierra's pre-vacation requests was to eat at an "Authentic Italian Restaurant" -- so that she could order "Fettuccini Alfredo, with Spaghetti noodles"... um.. okay.
And her visit wouldn't have been complete if she didn't get a chance to see the rest of the Schmid family -- Easter brunch at our Aunt Jennie's house was delightful and delicious

|At the Fox Bay Cinema -- super oldschool theatre with table service. The kids loved it :)|
Braved the crowd on the Easter long weekend, and brought the kids to Legoland in Schaumburg. Such a cool place but it was crowded as hell.. Whelp, at least the KIDS had fun..
The last hoorah consisted of a one-night-stay at Key Lime Cove -- a hotel -slash- indoor water park -slash- resort. Whatever you want to call it, it was effin awesome, and I'm so glad we did it
|Hey! We know you! We just saw you at Walmart a couple of days ago!|
|Water slide fun!|

A final visit to Nibbles Café for some breakfast, before the little diva and I headed to airport for her drop-off

It was so much fun hanging out with my little Yaya Monster for her Spring Break.. but a week just wasn't quite long enough!
